The Benchakiti park (Aka Benjakiti or Benjakitti Park) is located in Asoke, Downtown Bangkok, and is a few steps away from BTS Station Asoke and MRT Station Sukhumvit. You can also enter the Park via MRT Station Queen Sirikit National Convention Center.
The Benchakiti Park offers a central boating lake, an outdoor exercise area, a cycling track and a path that is used by walkers and joggers. Bicycles and boats can be hired in the park. With sunrise, the first joggers come to run one or more rounds of 1.8 km around the sea. Sometimes you will see Nordic walkers and bicycles using the bike track.
For parents and children who are tired to go for shopping in Terminal 21, it is recommendable to go outside and enjoy Benchakiti Park. The park is nearest to a lot of hotels like Sheraton and others. At the northern entrance, you will find the Asoke Montri Rd only some meters far from the BTS Station Asoke, MRT Station Suhkumvit, the Shopping Mall Terminal 21 and the office buildings Interchange and Exchange.
In the eastern part of the park, there is a children’s playground and a public outdoor gymnastic area. Here you are invited to relax in the shade under the trees at noon and enjoy comfortable seats as an alternative to the infrastructure of your office during lunch break.
A bicycle and boat hire business as well as shops for drinks and snacks complete the service offerings in the southwestern part of this area.
In the south, the Queen Sirikit Convention Hall adjoins the park with the same named Metro Station. The Queen Sirikit Convention Hall is located at the crossing of Asoke Montri and Rama IV. Diagonal you will find a big market where you can get fresh vegetables and meat as well as living animals like ducks and chicken.
